If you have kids under the age of 10, this is a great place to visit. The Children's Museum has spaces for all ages, from crawlers to racers. It's a pretty big facility. There is a pirate ship and a castle, indoor areas and outdoor...More

A medieval castle with child friendly passages. Hands on activities and dress up opportunities. A great way to spend the afternoon. A little expensive. :(More

This is in downtown, right near the Visitor's Center. I was there with a 2 and 6 year old and there was plenty for both of them to do. There were different themed rooms (i.e. grocery store, medieval times, water, transportation and arts and crafts)....More

We thought we'd be saying to our grandsons 'we had one of those' but it isn't what I would call a museum, BUT it's great. We spent 3 hours there on a very hot day and they still didn't want to leave. A great castle,...More
